Ah, I got confused; `message-header-separator` is a leftover from an
experiment of mine... Indeed, as you say the variable is

Well, it seems to only be of effect when `mail-header-separator` has its
default value "--text follows this line--". I checked, and

- when it's the default separator, I can confirm that changing the face
  `message-separator` does change the separator's color.

- when I changed `mail-header-separator` to "---" (or anything different
  from the default), the face `message-separator` doesn't apply to it

So it's a bug.
